What is the lounge benefit?

Investec’s complimentary airport lounge benefit gives our clients access to select airport lounges. These lounges are a quiet space to relax before a flight, get some snacks and a beverage, making the whole travel experience more pleasurable and stress-free.

The lounge benefit is linked to the type of Investec Private Bank Account you hold.

For access to an airport lounge, you need to present your boarding pass and your physical Investec Visa card (card must be valid and active). The name on the boarding pass must match the name on your Investec Visa card.
